With the launch of the online news channel http://www.andnetwork.com on September 01, 2005; internet users in Africa and around the world will now be able to access up-to-date news from the continent much faster, on a second by second basis.

The main purpose of launching Andnetwork is to bridge the time delay gap and allow internet users the opportunity to watch news events while they are still current. “We will only display current news and information from African countries”, said the CEO of African News Dimension publishers of andnetwork.com Ralston E. Smith.

The aspirant newcomer will compete with major media players including AllAfrica and SABC Africa. Andnetwork has also introduced the continents first "pay-per-region" advertising program, according to a local newspaper.    

Commenting on the launch, Smith said, "The fundamental argument for the launch of our news network has been brought about by the demand for real time news and information from the African continent.”

The online news agency offers many advantages to Journalists and Media Professionals by providing a data store for their work and also protection of their copyright. Unlike its rivals, Andnetwork will not be inundated with advertising banners that are time consuming to download. http://www.andnetwork.com
